My poor boy. I had to leave him at the vet.
His eye had a small amount of discharge yesterday, nothing that I would have been concerned about as he occassionally gets this. Took him to the vet for his bordatella. Got him home and two hours later his right eye is absolutely horrible looking, sunk back in his head, third lid showing, bottom lid hanging down and blood red.
Still thinking he scratched it, I put in some ointment and hoped to see improvement after a good night of sleep.
5:00 this morning he got me up and his other eye is inflammed as well, not as bad as the right, but the lower lid is hanging down.
Took him in to the vet first thing. He has an ulcer on his right eye. I'm so upset. We put more ointment in it (the same stuff I have for my horse with the bad eye)... and he was in so much pain after that the vet wanted to keep him so she can sedate him and do a thorough exam to be sure nothing is in his eye.
I'm really worried about my boy. Even I could see the ulcer once we pried his eye open and she shined the light in it.
Any prayers or good thoughts appreciated. They will be sedating him around 12:30, 1:00.
Oh, I'm so sorry! Best thoughts for healing coming your way........

Oh no Linda, I'm so sorry to hear it. Prayers for Remmy.
What causes the ulcer? It's a temporary thing, right? Treatable so he'll be back to 100%?

Oh no. Hoping he heals quickly & has no pain.
Good thoughts and paws crossed that Remington will be well soon.
